It was only February when it was announced that Fujifilm would be acquiring American-owned Xerox in a $6.1 billion deal. It seems that now, though, that deal is not going to happen, thanks to a couple of “activist investors”, reports the BBC. Carl Icahn and Darwin Deason own, between them, 15% of Xerox and had opposed the deal. They say it undervalued the company and trouble has been brewing ever since/
Six Xerox board members and CEO, Jeff Jacobson agreed to step down in a settlement deal reached just a couple of weeks ago. This caused a 3% drop in Xerox shares, following a court decision to temporarily halt the deal. Now, the BBC report that Xerox has officially ended the sale.
